The Other Side Landscaping, Inc., an 9 year old McKinney based Company, has launched a program that assists Police, Fire and EMS personnel in Collin County that are injured in the Line of Duty.
The company will assist them with their lawn care until either they are released from their Physician or placed on permanent leave, all at no cost to the injured party. The program, called Operation Red, White and Blue, was unveiled during a meeting of the Collin County Firefighters Association that was held in Farmersville last week.
Mr. Mike Holum, President/CEO of The Other Side Landscaping, Inc. said “It’s a great way of giving back to the community and to assist those that help us during a time of need.”
Mr. Holum also presented the Collin County Firefighters Association with a donation of $1,000.00.
“It’s been an incredibly busy fire season in Collin County and these guys are responsible for protecting every citizen and they provide thousands of volunteer hours. I’m absolutely amazed at the selflessness of each of these special men and women that serve in these capacities; we are so blessed to have such a courageous group to ensure our safety.”
With Fire Prevention Week coming up, I thought it would be a great time to launch this special project. The Other Side Landscaping, Inc. also participates in another program that assists Military Personnel that are deployed overseas that does the same service, that program is called Green Care for Troops.
This is the second donation this year to a Collin County Fire Department. The Other Side Landscaping, Inc. provided a donation of $4,500.00 to the City of Melissa, to assist in the procurement of a Cardiac Defibrillator to be used during critical needs of the citizens experiencing traumatic injuries or cardiac events, in the City of Melissa and the surrounding area.
Holum called the donation a “gift for life” and stated “I cannot think of a better way to way to serve our community than to assist with this critical tool”. “What an incredible opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors”.
